Peers 2023

The Khoj Peers residency program provides emerging artists and creative practitioners a platform for dialogue, experimentation, and exchange. This helps in building a forum and creating a network of young interdisciplinary artists from various art, architecture, new media, performance, performing arts and design disciplines.

About this edition

Functioning as a unique residency model that closely curates artists at the start of their professional careers, the Peers residency is populated with artists’ visits and interactions, studio visits and curated exhibition walk-throughs, for the residents to have a gamut of art-related experiences and exposure.

The Peers residency ends with an Open Day, where resident artists show their works in progress and interact with audiences. Following the Open day, Khoj organises Peers Share, a two-day intensive seminar for young artists who had qualified for the final round of the Peers selection process. Peers Share is a great learning opportunity for young artists to showcase their own practice and get valuable feedback and criticism from their peers, colleagues, senior art practitioners, art critics, and the Khoj curatorial team.
